Photographer's Note

This is a sitting style which can be seen across India & in countries in Asia. So much so, that this posture is called ‘Asian Squat’ :-)

Scene in the morning at Sumrasar Sheikh, a village 22 km from Bhuj, famous for Kala Raksha Center, the Art & Crafts preservation centre, which is thriving since its inception some 30 years ago

Men & their Morning Newspapers! Balancing himself in this squatted posture on a not-so-wide stool, he seemed immersed in the newspaper article about the Earthquake which had struck Bonin Islands in Japan on December 2010. So immersed was he, that he didn't seem to be even aware of my presence
